Album Notes
"Jim Wurster is one of the best almost-kept secrets of the South Florida singer-songwriter world, a leading light of a micro-scene that revolves around small venues like the Luna Star Cafe. While his artist bio may be given to, shall we say, hyperbole, this much is true: Once upon a time, Wurster fronted the very popular local rock act Black Janet. A dreamy, dark quintet, Black Janet combined some of the atmospherics of 4AD-type bands, the murder-ballad stylings of Nick Cave, and even a little bit of Smiths-style (or maybe, early-R.E.M.-style) jangle. In other words, Black Janet was really good stuff, and Jim Wurster was responsible for writing a large chunk of it."

"When he split from Black Janet after six years with that band, Wurster took a different musical tack, focusing instead on rootsier rock. It's just as interesting, and carries on from his previous band a distinctly tart, melancholic thread."
